Faux Skirt

Thanks for your sweet comments on yesterdays post!  I wanted to let you know that yesterdays "skirt" was actually a maxi dress + sweater.  Tricked ya didn't I?

A few weeks ago I spotted this skirt from Anthro..but one look at the price tag and I had to put it down. 



Later, I remembered that I had a maxi dress that was almost the same color.  I also remembered a trick that Kendi did a while back.  She layered a light sweater on top of a maxi dress and voila..it looked like a skirt + shirt.

Who knew that all this time I had my own version sitting in my closet?

  5. Great way to get creative! My favorite thing about blogging is getting inspired and finding things I already have in my closet... I think I actually shop LESS than before!
